What I’m doing today

June 10, 2008 at 4:09 pm (Uncategorized)

As of 3:30 PM yesterday, my contract with the Williamsport Area School District came to a close.  So today starts the awkward, rushed, and stressful period of transition where packing looms around every corner and a mixture of positive and negative anxiety plague the mind.  So what am i doing about it today?   Packing of course.  I’m taking a quick break to eat and waiting for a phone call to tell me where I’m going to live in 4 days.  The first year of the program at McLean includes a home stay with a family in the church.  I have no expectations or idea of what it could be like.  I’ve heard that it could be anything from a single room in a small house, to a huge mansion that a local rich family owns and needs someone to house sit for a year….ok so thats a little too optimistic, but i has happened in the past.  Either way, my goal over the next few days is to get rid of everything i can do without and more.  I’ve thrown away a ton of stuff that i didn’t even realize that i had including clothes, old school supplies, “welcome to penn state” packets etc.  I’ve also thrown a lot of stuff away that while i still want to hold on to (i’m a pack rat) i still needed to say goodbye to.  It’s kind of wild and definitely taking me on a few trips down memory lane.  I will still have a great deal of music stuff/gear to tag along but thats my life so i think thats ok.  Anyway, soon i should be able to tell you my new address and maybe at some point i can start packing the car.  Tomorrow I’m taking a load of stuff down to store with a family friend that lives in Laurel, MD.  Please pray for me these next few days because I’ve picked up a sore-throat/cough, and I’m really going to need a lot of strength to make this transition i so many different ways.  Ok back to work.
